My Review??? Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball: A Novella

From the backcover:

In a sleepy, snow-covered city, Cora Crowder is busy preparing for the holiday season. Searching for a perfect gift, a fortuitous trip to Warner, Werner, and Wizbotterdad’s (a most unusual bookshop) leads to an unexpected encounter with co-worker Simon Derrick. And the surprise discovery of a ticket for a truly one-of-a-kind Christmas Ball.

Every year, the matchmaking booksellers of the Sage Street bookshop host an enchanting, old-fashioned Christmas Ball for the romantic matches they’ve decided to bring together.

This year, will Simon and Cora discover a perfect chemistry in their opposite personalities and shared faith? Or will the matchmakers’ best laid plans end up ruining everything this holiday?

My Review:

I honestly don't know which way to go with my review for Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball: A Novella
by Donita K Paul.  This is a book that I had a hard time putting down and read it in record time.  But I find myself wondering if there shouldn't be more to the story.  This book has a Fantasy/Christian theme which is very hard to do.  The characters were great to get to know and were really starting to develop but I was let down at the end of the book.  Don't get me wrong...I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to others...but for me personally I wish the story had gone further.  I felt as though there were some loose ends that needed to be wrapped up in several of the story lines.  And I honestly feel as though this story would have been better if it had been either all fantasy or all Christian.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
